750 mL bottle poured into a snifter. Reviewed from notes.

Appearance - Deep reddish brown. Thin khaki collar but not much else.

Smell - Peachy aroma. Faint brett. Lots of caramel. Sweet fruity aroma, presumably from the barrel.

Taste - Sweet caramel and brandy liquor flavor. Much stronger brett presence. Fruitiness comes back in the end.

Mouthfeel - Big, but well carbonated. Hefty beer, very heavy.

Overall - I get all the components, but I don't love it. The brett is an odd addition.

Bottle pour for New Brew Thursday's 3rd Anniversary event held at Beachwood BBQ & Brewing in Long Beach, CA.

Bottle # 119.

Pours a murky brown with a foamy khaki head that settles to a film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace slowly drip into the remaining beer on the drink down. Smell is sour and tart with malt, fruit, and acidic aromas. Taste is much the same with a fruity flavor on the finish. There is a mild amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp and medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer with some solid aromas and flavors.

Big thanks to Moll for sharing this bottle. Served in a Lost Abbey teku glass. The nose has pretty heavy barrel character with some slightly sour fruit. A bit of booze. Flavor is slightly tangy with dak fruit and moderate barrel. I'd be interested to see how this one develops.
